Learning Objective:

Learn how to conduct a STAR Certification audit to assess compliance with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Cloud Control Matrix (CCM). You'll learn how to determine a maturity score and recommend a rating for STAR Certification. You can only audit to the STAR Certification scheme and recommend a rating once you have attended and passed this course.


STAR Certification gives cloud service providers the ability to prove that their cloud controls have been independently assessed against the STAR certification maturity model. Certified clients will appear on the CSA's STAR Registry. The maturity model checks a service provider's security performance against the CSA's Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) to award an overall grade. Only a certified STAR auditor can assess a service provider against the CCM to recommend STAR Certification.

Led by an experienced tutor, this two day course will help you learn how to conduct an audit for STAR certification and will work through a detailed case study to teach you how to determine a rating for STAR certification. To successfully complete this course, you will need to pass an examination.

Who should attend?

Only ISO/IEC 27001 qualified auditors working for certification bodies accredited by an International Accreditation Forum (IAF) member to ISO/IEC 27006 can take this course.
